Louie 'Terror Baby' Gohmert Says Gun Safety Measure Is Like Gay Marriage and Bestiality

East Texas Congressman Louie “Terror Baby” Gohmert is back in the news, this time comparing proposed limits on high-capacity gun magazines to same-sex marriage and bestiality. It’s a slippery slope, he argues. From Talking Points Memo:

“In fact, I had this discussion with some wonderful, caring Democrats earlier this week on the issue of, well, they said ‘surely you could agree to limit the number of rounds in a magazine, couldn’t you? How would that be problematic?’” Gohmert said on [a conference call with tea party leaders). “And I pointed out, well, once you make it ten, then why would you draw the line at ten? What’s wrong with nine? Or eleven? And the problem is once you draw that limit — it’s kind of like marriage when you say it’s not a man and a woman anymore, then why not have three men and one woman, or four women and one man, or why not somebody has a love for an animal?”

He added, “There is no clear place to draw the line once you eliminate the traditional marriage and it’s the same once you start putting limits on what guns can be used, then it’s just really easy to have laws that make them all illegal.”

  1. Louis — Interesting comparison. But it does sort of break down since I don’t think anyone has ever been killed — intentionally or accidentally — from marrying the person they love. Comparing high capacity gun magazines to the capacity to love someone of your choosing just…doesn’t…add..up. But, Louis, you were never known for your astuteness or sound thought processes.

  2. I bet he thinks high volume “magazines” have names such as Time, Life, and Atlantic Monthly.

    Anyone want to bet real money on that? I didn’t think so because you know there is a very real chance of losing that bet when this guy is in the middle of it.

  3. Why on earth do Texans keep electing these goobers? Gohmert had a very qualified opponent last November, Shirley McKellar, who received insufficient votes to send her to Washington. The stupid East Texas voters just can’t seem to help themselves.

    And voters all across Texas elected Ted Cruz, another intellectual lightweight who has embarrassed our state almost daily since he’s been in DC.

    When I’m traveling, I’m reluctant to tell people that I’m from Texas. They think we’re all like Gohmert, Cruz, Cornyn, Perry, etc. The whole world is laughing at us.

    Wise up, Texas voters. Stop electing these yo-yos.
